Client Spotlight: Diamante Group: Crisis and Emergency Management Consultants
Over on my blog, Smart Business Revolution, I profile Diamante Public Sector Group, a Sacramento-based crisis and emergency management consulting firm which is a client of the Corcoran Law Firm. Led by Reggie Salvador and Tad Bell (co-founder Mark Ghilarducci recently took a leave of absence when he was appointed by California Governor Jerry Brown as Secretary of the California Emergency Management Agency), Diamante has worked on a number of high-profile crisises, from Hurricane Katrina to the Pacific Gas and Electric gasline explosion in San Bruno, California in 2010.
In the profile, Reggie and Tad recount their experiences working on Hurricane Katrina:
When Hurricane Katrina occurred in 2005, we assisted the State of Louisiana to help them with their response and recovery efforts. In Louisiana, the National Guard had responsibility for emergency services. This alone created numerous issues from military support to operational and political quagmires. In the long run, we were successful in convincing the State (through new legislation) to remove emergency services from the National Guard and place it as a stand-alone agency.
